Two of our mowers may look a little funny to you this spring. That’s because they have been converted to propane! Propane is clean-burning and odorless. Propane also shrinks our carbon footprint, which translates to less carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and nitrous oxide particulate matter which is much better for the environment and in turn, your plants! Not to mention 90% of our nation’s propane is produced here in the U.S.!
Propane fuel is also better for the families that we serve and their pets. Propane doesn’t create fumes or exhaust. Did you know that when you “smell propane” what you’re actually smelling is an additive designed to alert you to a leak? If there is a leak, nothing ends up on the ground like conventional gasoline; propane dissipates into an environmentally friendly mist.
That’s not all! The truck that comes to your house to mow the lawn is also a “Next Generation” Isuzu truck. It boasts a 20% improved fuel economy and increased payload capacity while making the truck as a whole lighter.
Jeff Gerbert, partner, said that he is “Very excited about being on the cutting edge of going truly green.” More conversions are on the horizon too, hopefully within the next 5 years the whole fleet of mowers will be converted to clean burning propane.
